Don't TELL ME what I mean.

Buying low and selling high is the essence of successful stock market investing.

Knowing when the lows and highs are is the hardest part.

Wait a darn minute here,

With in the last few days you have made these comments:

1. "Obama DID NOT correct the economy."

2. "Trump's borrow and spending is funding 21% of the jobs of those employed.

TECHNICALLY, WE ARE IN A DEPRESSION"

3. "We are smack dab in the middle of a Recession/Depression."

4. "IF THE GOVERNMENT IS SPENDING THE MONEY THAT EMPLOYS 1 IN 5 JOBS,

WE ARE IN A RECESSION!"

 

So,,,, which is it?

 

We are in a recession/depression.

Government spending is hiding that fact.

Sometime in the future, the politicians/banking industry will find it advantageous to advertise that fact,

which is when the panic will begin.

That is stock market gambling.

Investing is a dignified word. It means buying a stock with the expectation of the share of the profits from the business called dividends.

The goal of putting some money in the stock market is to have it grow into MORE money faster than the rate of inflation.

Tech companies prefer to reinvest profits in growth, which makes the share price rather often.

Day trading is really gambling.

Buying any stock is gambling.

No one even understands the expressions;

Widows and Orphan stocks,

or,

Big Blue,

anymore.

Ok, just checking to see if your stance has changed.

 

As far as panic selling goes, it is very possible. In the current environment when a tweet can make the DOW tumble 800 points it is highly likely volatility will go higher. I wouldn't be surprised to see the VIX spike up to the high 30"s again. When is the question.

 

I think the Bears are pretty hungry and the higher the market goes, their drooling increases.

 

Right or wrong, we went from 100% equities to 100% bonds in August and continue to buy equities through our 401ks. So panic selling is not a huge concern for us right now. Being less than a decade from retirement, it was time to take a more "conservative" stance.

CDs at credit unions and banks. (not Taylor Swift, but the grandchildren would like that)

My senior citizen wife still has a lot in what she believes is a "safe fund". I don't know what it is.

She is still working, and seldom listens to my ramblings, but it is her earnings, and we are already receiving more than the average household income from Social Security, and live like we are in the poverty level, so I don't much care.

I won't outlive my money.

We are happy.

 

My 16 year old car may soon turn over 85,000 miles,

Thanks for your answer.  This is exactly the the course of action I'm considering.  Haven't done it yet.

The original post had ZILCH to do with "social identities".

What is YOUR social identity, sole?

Panicking and cashing out has always been the dumbest thing to do.

Ideally, a really smart investor would have cashed out BEFORE the crash.

ALWAYS consult Stansberry Research. Stansberry is an expert on impending crises. NOT.

everything reality is about has to do with social identities and rank within contextual groups of who people declare themselves as beyond just reproductions sustaining the numbers present in the atmosphere now.

Liberals have been promoting a recession since before Trump took office.

The deficit spending of borrowed dollars will pay the salaries of 1 in 5 working people,

in other words, there would be 20% plus unemployment.

WE ARE IN A RECESSION.

THE SPENDING IS HIDING IT FROM THE PUBLIC,

WHO DON'T UNDERSTAND THE ECONOMY.

Doesn't change my point. Your goal is no different than those using crude ones.
